Where Have You Been?

If you have asked yourself this question, well then, I thank you for caring enough to inquire.

If you've not wondered into my whereabouts... well, whatever.

The answer is that I have been wicked freakin' busy!

Work has blown up as we scramble to meet Q3 and Q4 goals while planning for 2008.

I've also been to South Beach for a bachelor party... (all good fun but I'll spare you the sordid details!)

I've taken a swing at the flying trapeze! Holy smokes that was awesome! I'll post on that soon -- and I have video of my daring feat!

The baby is due in just two weeks but there have been some "developments" that suggest our new arrival could come at any moment. As such there has been a mad dash to acquire, wash, assemble and install all the necessary baby gear. I've been to Babies "R" Us to demo strollers more times than I ever thought possible!

My life as a runner and triathlete has really slowed. I've all but given up on swimming for now and "Billy" (my bike) sits idle in what is fast becoming the nursery. I've gotten out for a couple of runs but mostly just easy 5-milers - amounting to a modest 15-20 miles a week (if that!).

My Google Reader currently has 154 unread posts and I look forward to getting caught up with you when time allows. Though I do have a sneaky suspicion that life is only going to gain momentum rather than slow down.

Wow, I can't believe the baby is coming so soon! It feels like just yesterday that you shared the good news. I think your suspicions will turn out to be very true...

Thanks for checking in!

Life is going to get mighty busy for you sometime during the next 2 weeks. But remember, we love baby pictures (especially those of us who are way past the point of having more children). Post a few photos once a week or so and we'll be happy. We'll know you're still out there and get a chance to see your baby's pics in the bargin.

Best of luck to you and your wife.

Nice to hear from you again. A note every now and then is good enough for staying in touch. Best wishes for the weeks ahead!

And I thought you would never come back!!!!

I hope you'll start giving running lessons to the baby early on - then you won't have an excuse not to run!!!

Good luck.

Yes I have been asking that question "where Josh be at". I even asked Suzanne "where's Josh" and Eamonn on Sunday if he has spoken to you. So you are on my mind!!! I did finally see you Monday night for a brief moment. YEAH

Wow pretty soon Daddy-o!!! It's very exciting!!! Well I'm back in the box and resting and recovering. Hopefully when I come back I'm ready to pump it up again. All the best, Janine
